Outdoor Soccer Portraits at the Studio :: Caitlin’s Senior Session

posted in: Notes | 0

Caitlin came to the studio this summer for her senior portrait session.  Last summer, when I did her brother’s senior portraits at Mill Creek Park in Dexter, Caitlin tagged along too.  It was fun getting to see her again, and create some new, updated, portraits of Caitlin for her very own senior pictures.  This time, we stayed inside the studio for most of Caitlin’s portrait session, since the weather was ominous and all.

Our plan, assuming the weather held off?  To finish off the session with a series of outdoor soccer portraits.  Thankfully, the weather turned out beautifully (isn’t it crazy how that always happens?)…. and Caitlin’s senior portraits were able to go as planned.  Bonus?  You’d never know it was terribly muggy and humid from the photos.  Love that Michigan weather, right?

I really can’t say which of these outfits was my favorite.  Caitlin did such a nice job of curating (or is it coordinating) her own outfits, down the accessories.  While I’m happy to give advice, I love it when my clients are confident in their own style and know what looks good on them!

So, without further delay, here are her senior portraits.  Enjoy!

We started off in the studio with a more formal outfit. I was originally going to take the brown out of this backdrop to match Caitlin’s dress, but it looks too good with her curls!

We created a few full length portraits of Caitlin… I love how the stripes on this dress change in size… so fun!

This was another one of Caitlin’s outfits. I love how the sweater and sunglasses complement her dress… such a nice touch! And that smile… gorgeous!

When we headed outside for the last part of Caitlin’s senior portrait session, she was really in her element. She plays soccer — and I hear she is an awesome goalie!

Caitlin’s mom loved this portrait …and I think this one might be my favorite of the soccer senior portrait series too. What do you think?

Then again, I just LOVE the wide expanse of sky in this portrait. It’s so hard to pick a favorite… but if you were going with a wall portrait, this would be my pick — it would look great in larger formate!

And the game face. I might have that titled wrong, but we were going for something more serious or fierce, rather than just cheerful here. Do you think we got it?
